  • Milit-End: He was discharged from the armed forces on 23 March 1919. Private Roby - #266523 - Disembodiment - discharged from The Somerset Regiment L 9.

    In the military sense disembodiment usually means separation of the body of troops as in disbanding rather than the philosophical sense of separation of
    the soul from the body.

    During wars, regiments of the British Army generally raise extra battalions above the usual one or two in peacetime. The battalion is the fighting unit of infantry, commanded by a Lieutenant Colonel and consisting of 600 or more men. In WW1 many regiments had 10 or more battalions. It is easy to understand that a good deal of time was needed to reduce the army to peacetime strength.

    The four options mean something like this

    Discharge - Discharge of the individual soldier.
    Transfer to the Reserve - This speaks for itself.
    Disembodiment - Separation of the man from the battalion
    Demobilisation - Removal of the battalion from the active list and disbanding.

    However, I note that he was discharged on medical grounds, with a rupture retaine by a truss and a condition described as "chrondroma rib", 20%.4
